Law Schools at Two Historically Black Universities Get Top Marks From Corporate and Law Firm Recruiters

The online career research firm Vault Inc. surveyed 512 recruiters from corporations and law firms across the country. Recruiters were asked to name law schools that, based on their experience as hiring managers, are underrated.

Emory University Law School was chosen as the most underrated law school in the nation. But two of the 25 most underrated law schools, according to the Vault survey, are housed at a historically black university. The Howard University School of Law was ranked as the third most underrated law school. The law school at North Carolina Central University in Durham was 14th on the list.
